Mattel brings Pixar's Toy Story Space Mission To Infinity and Beyond

It’s been just a little over a year since Disney and Pixar brought the Toy Story franchise full circle, from Andy to Bonnie, with last summer’s Toy Story 3. However, even with the film’s bittersweet closure, fans have been wondering (Buzz-ing, even) about a fourth sequel since the credits rolled on the third film. And while Mattel isn’t exactly stepping forth to announce Toy Story 4, they did something almost as cool; animating a Toy Story short film using the actual Toy Story toys! The entire spot was created using toys from a new line, Toy Story: Space Mission, during a 4 week toymation filming session, where each character is all geared up in special outfits. Take a look at the animated short, as well as shots of the toy line!

Fanimation: Doodle v.s. Doodle

Fanimation: Doodle v.s. Doodle

Fan animation has been around as long as professional animation – in fact, many would argue longer. We’ve featured a few spots in the past months highlighting some of the work we’ve found on the net, hoping to shed some fame towards the hard work of some loyal toonists out there. This latest piece, Doodle vs Doodle, is yet the newest addition to the segment we’ll title “Fanimation” from now on. The production is entirely created in stop-motion video by Jace D, at the young age of 13! As a bonus to Jace’s great work, we also liked spotting some of the animation influences within the project: Toy Story’s Buzz, T.U.F.F. Puppy, Phineas and Ferb, and more. Check out Jace’s work, and see what else you notice!

Looks… familiar? I mean, close, but not really? You can sorta see Andy and Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jessie, Rex, Bullseye, Hamm, and a few others from Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story franchise, but the detail is certainly much less CG than we’re used to. That’s because this is the concept art phase of the film’s development. Months after the hand-drawn sketches take us through the basics of the story, individual scenes are fleshed out with color in these rendered paintings, giving all of the digital artists a proper sense of what to create. The lighting, the mood, the frame cropping, etc. And guess what; there’s tons of this content, all happily packed in the Blu-ray and DVD combo packs, due in stores November 2nd. Check out some more!

Use your mouse. Use your brain. Use your …bridge! Remember the opening moments of Toy Story 3, when Buzz, Jessie, and Woody did their best to escape the clutches of Mr. Potato Head and his millions of monkeys? Well, much of that scene depended upon the gang saving the train, barreling it’s way towards a bridge-less gap. Imagine how much easier that would have been if you could drag and drop objects, like in this game, to create a clear path for the train to travel across safely.
